Daithí O’Connor is MD of Revive Active and a Galway entrepreneur. He was the youngest of six boys and always worked as a teenager. From making the tea on a building site, pulling pints or fishing salmon on his cousin’s half decker.
Daithí went straight from boarding school into the bank and spent years in finance and management. He made many friends through work and eventually set up his own financial services company DC Atlantic Investments Ltd in 2005. It was a very successful company but Daithí was always on the lookout for another, different challenge.
During the recession demand for financial services decreased and Daithí felt that he needed to put his time and energy into a project that he could grow and had an export angle. He saw a gap in the market for a range of quality super supplements and Revive Active was born.
